ICYMI: Senator Scott Discusses His Investing in Opportunity Act on Fox Business

Washington – U.S. Senator Scott (R-SC) spoke with Charles Payne on Fox Business for a segment on his Investing in Opportunity Act, which was included in the recent tax reform bill.

Excerpts from conversation:
“These are private sector dollars coming into distressed communities, where 50 million Americans live, that’ll provide long-term opportunities to transform communities and the people who live in there – everything from workforce investment to better education, to businesses being attracted into these Opportunity Zones.”

“We hope to see a real investment of time, talent and treasure into these areas, and by doing so, it will excavate these hidden talents in communities, right in their own backyards.”

“Our greatest potential talent pool is right here in our own country in our own backyards. Let’s put those folks to work and continue to reduce the unemployment rates of people of color.”
